Looking for Spice? We changed our name to Tempo in October 2018.

What we do

We co-design and deliver Time Credits programmes in partnership with local authorities, health, social care and housing providers, schools, businesses and voluntary sector organisations.

Time Credits work very simply: for each hour that an individual contributes to their community or service, they could earn a Time Credit. This Time Credit can be spent accessing an hour of activity provided by one of our corporate and community partners, or gifted to others.

Watch this video, produced as part of University of Cambridge research, to see a typical volunteer’s journey with Time Credits.
